Best Storage Sheds (2021): Amazing Features and Benefits
Strong and Secure Tongue & Groove Cladding
Built using tongue and groove panels (although we also offer overlap models0, our best storage sheds are designed with security and stability in mind. These high-quality timber panels interlock, creating a smooth finish with a tight seal which both enhances the style and strength of our storage sheds.
With 11mm tongue and groove roofing and flooring as standard, your storage shed will be protected at all points of its thermal envelope. And for added security and insulation, our log cabin storage sheds start with 19mm cladding as standard with the option to upgrade to 28mm!
Tongue & Groove Roof Included
The roofs on our storage sheds are made using the same T&G technique as the rest of the storage unit, offering a secure and durable covering. The panels of the roof interlock to form a strong bond, preventing water ingress and anything that could ruin your storage shed’s contents.
Complete with felt as standard, our storage sheds are designed to keep whatever they’re holding dry and maintained.
Tongue & Groove Flooring
Like our storage sheds roof, premium flooring options are also available including the option for thicker tongue and groove panels and pressure treatment.
Pressure Treated Options Available
By pressure treating timber in a vacuum, preservatives and chemicals penetrate much deeper. Because of this, your storage shed would be better protected and for longer against even the harshest of UK weather.
That’s why we can offer our BillyOh 15-year guarantee against rot, decay, and insect infestation on all our pressure treated sheds (10 years on regular sheds).
Now we’ve got design insights out of the way, let’s have a look at:

Although our BillyOh garden storage sheds feature tightly interlocking panels, space for heavy-duty locks and even windowless options, security will always still be a risk.
